Turn to God's Word

'My covenant I will not break, nor alter the word that has gone out of my lips.' Psalm 89:34 NKJV

A popular children's book is called Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. Alexander falls asleep with gum in his mouth, and finds it in his hair upon waking. His breakfast cereal box lacks a toy in the bottom, and he can't impress his teacher despite his best efforts. He resolves several times to move to Australia. Unfortunately, geographical cures don't work. You just relocate the problem.Each of us will experience despondency to some degree during our lifetime. But some people wake up each day in a cloud of gloom. You may be one of those people.So what can you do? Seek help from a trusted friend or counsellor. And, turn to the one source of strength, hope and encouragement that never fails - God's living Word. God says, 'My covenant I will not break, nor alter the word that has gone out of my lips' (Psalm 89:34 NKJV). If you're feeling down today, here are some Scriptures you can stand on: 'He sent his word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions' (Psalm 107:20 NKJV). 'I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living' (Psalm 27:13 NKJV). 'In the day of my trouble I will call upon you, for you will answer me' (Psalm 86:7 NKJV). 'Behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; nor his ear heavy, that it cannot hear' (Isaiah 59:1 NKJV). 'I will go in the strength of the Lord God' (Psalm 71:16 NKJV).
